Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while Reckless Getaway looks like a standard racing game at first glance, it is really more like a vehicular combat game. The underlying story is that players are in the role of a recent bank robber who must make his getaway as fast as possible. While the game itself functions as a sort of racing game (players have to dash away from the cops as quickly as possible), there is a nonstop sense of violence as players are encouraged to smash the innocent civilian cars throughout their conquest. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is it any good?
RECKLESS GETAWAY appeals to the inner "bad guy" in players, letting them live vicariously on the wrong side of the law. Because it is stylized and detached from reality, the game does have a solid gameplay system, there are some cool jumps and tricks players can perform with their car, and there is a sense of thrill and energy while frantically driving through each course. Parents should definitely be aware of the messages presented in this game, but for players who are able to fully understand that this is just a game, it can be a fun and enjoyable ride.
